Validating Data Collection

After you add an adapter instance, you will most likely want to validate the data that it collects in vROps.


NOTE: If you enabled Autodiscovery for the adapter instance, it will create resources as soon as it begins collecting metrics. If you disabled Autodiscovery for the adapter instance, you must go back and discover resources manually before you can validate data collection. See: Discovering Resources Manually.


  1. Select the Environment navigation shortcut.
  2. Under Inventory Trees, select All Objects, then expand the Microsoft SCOM objects list.
  3. Select a resource from the list, then click the All Metrics tab to select metrics and validate values against the data source.

    All Objects > All Metrics
